Larry King defends Kathy Griffin’s photoshoot displaying the severed head of President Donald J. Trump and now extends the same courtesy to Bill Maher for using the N-Word in an exchange with Senator Ben Sasse on his HBO show “Real Time.”
The exchange went as follows:
“We’d love to have you work in the fields with us.”
“Work in the field?” Maher responded in a sarcastic tone. “Senator… I’m a house n******.”
Twitter lit up immediately with calls for Maher’s cancelation and Larry King has come forth true to form with pretty much the same blasé statement he made in relation to Kathy Griffin’s horrendous display last week saying that he’s known the comic for years and
“there’s not a racist bone in his body. Let’s accept his apology and move on.”
It’s completely irrelevant whether or not Bill Maher’s a racist. What matters is what he did. An apology does little to quell the damage derived from statement.
What we do defines us. Kathy Griffin has now come out saying she’s being bullied by the POTUS and his family and now she’s the victim. The same camp that’s accusing men of micro aggressions for opening doors for women because that action in some way indicates men believe women are incapable of opening doors are crying foul when they commit truly horrific public displays and are criticized for it.
The time has come for people to be held accountable for their own actions, not blaming society or anything else because they’ve made a bad decision – the consequences of which they do not enjoy.
We are firmly in the era where common sense has been eroded by political correctness, children in schools have the power to destroy teachers’ careers because they’ve been “triggered by a micro-aggression”.
John Adams is rolling in his grave and Thomas Jefferson’s mug bears a vicious grin from ear to ear.
What the future holds, no one can say but if you don’t know where you’re going any road will take you there.
